Friends, family, and readers of this site know that I love Destiny. Seeing how this isn’t a site that’s ran by tons of writers, I usually limit my coverage of games to titles I myself find compelling. For that reason, you’re more likely to see me talk about Destiny, Uncharted, and DriveClub than Call of Duty or Assassin’s Creed. I say write about what you know. (Just to give you an idea as how horrible my back catalogue is. I still haven’t launched Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag though I purchased on day one.)
One thing that I love about Destiny is how accessible the game is. If I have 15 minutes to play, it takes all but 2-minutes to boot up my PS4 and be in orbit. Once there, I can do a quick strike or a few rounds of crucible. If I have a little bit more time, to the tower I go for bounties or perhaps I try to put together a nightfall strike or even raid.
As you can imagine, The Taken King was pre-ordered a long time ago and downloaded on day one when it launched but none of the experiences I write about are specific to that DLC. After the jump, a fun two-minute video that highlights a random Destiny Crucible (PVP) encounter someone recorded that shows why this game is so much fun. Seriously try to watch the video and not smile.
As promised, Destiny 2.0 is now live for all Guardians on PlayStation. That means those playing Destiny on PS3 or PS4 will be booted from their gameplay in order for the mandatory update to be downloaded and installed. Preparing the game for the massive The Taken King DLC, Destiny 2.0 will bring with it it a lot of changes, including the removal of two features that you should be aware of. It’s worth noting that Destiny 2.0 takes up a ton of space on PS4 and even more on PS3. Those details after the jump.
We’ve already outlines the massive amount of changes that will come with Destiny 2.0 which will be released for free sometime this upcoming week. While we’re getting a lot of additional goodies like higher level caps and slots for bounties, two features will be going away as Bungie prepares for a new world when The Taken King arrives. After the jump, we reveal what they are.
Prior to the release of The Taken King which launches on September 15th, Bungie will release Destiny 2.0 that will bring with it some massive changes to their now one year old world. With Destiny 2.0, Bungie is also preparing the game for The Taken King which promises to rework a lot of the games function as well as bring a massive amount of new content. Some tweaks with the latest update include increasing the level cap to 40, bounty slots increasing to 16, and a new quest screen.
After the jump, the full changes that will come with Destiny 2.o.
Stop what you’re doing -even if it’s open heart surgery! – as Xur has once again stocked up on the infamous Gjallarhorn. That’s right, for the price of just 17 Strange Coins, you and your loved ones can experience all that is almost awesome (will be fully awesome once you have Wolf Pack rounds). For the unacquainted, the Gjallarhorn is the strongest weapon in Destiny and a rare one to find. Even more rare is Xur selling one. At last count, I believe only one other time has Xur, the black arms dealer who appears over the weekend and disappears before midnight on Sundays offered this exotic weapon.
If you’re short on coins, you can find our guide after the jump with tips on how to attain Strange Coins (including an easy way to get 9) and the hilarity that has ensued on Twitter over players going nuts for the rare beast.
In late July, word came out about Destiny update 184.108.40.206. The patch, which at the time lacked a release date, was designed to include a fix for the Husk of the Pit as well as bring rewards to those who helped with the Nepal relief efforts.
Now Destiny update 220.127.116.11 is live and includes a few extra tweaks. Those details await you after the jump.
Hey Guardians, feeling tired of the same ol’ gear that you’ve been upgrading over the past year? Heard of The Taken King, the giant new DLC that’s set for release on September 15th? Well beyond all the goodies like new weapons, raids, storyline, and strikes, Bungie is also adding new gear as well.
More info after the jump.
Prior to Destiny update 2.0, which will usher in with it big changes to the game’s weapon system and prepare us all for The Taken King DLC, Bungie will release Destiny update 18.104.22.168. As the numbering scheme indicates, it won’t be a large update.
So what can we expect from the update? Those details after the jump.
Over at the official Destiny forums, Community Manager Chris “Cozmo23″ Shannon has put together a list of features most requested by Destiny players. While not giving them in the specific order of most requested to least, the community wish list is an interesting hodge podge of features that could either enhance the game or completely cripple it.
That list after the jump.
